The riding is quite good in Chittenden . Many of the trails have been groomed and others are sled packed. The recent snow has helped get things going again, much of the ice has a nice coating of snow, so that issue is getting better. At this point the ride to “The Wild Fern ” is still on for Saturday night. Meet at the Dam parking lot 5:30 and we’ll head over. Ride safely and “Ride Smooth”.

Between 5″ and 12″ of snow has fallen in the Chittenden and Pittsfield area with the higher amounts in the higher elevations. The fresh snow has helped the riding on it’s way back to good however we still urge all riders to use caution with the base layer that includes boiler plate ice especially in the corners and on hills. If you are fully studded it will help. Many trails are now sled packed. If you choose to ride please keep the possibility of ice in mind. Most sections are nice and powdery right now but with traffic it will quickly expose ice. Ride safely and “Ride Smooth”

Doug went for a ride this afternoon to see how the trails were. The base held pretty good North but major ice in a lot of areas. It’s gonna be treacherous with some fresh snow on top. Not good behind the dam and South. We do no recommend riding until we can get some snow stuck to these sections of glare ice . The weather forecast looks good and hopefully we will get some sticky stuff to make this boiler plate ice more user friendly. Stay tuned for more info in the next few days. Think Snow.!!!

We have scheduled a club ride to “The Wild Fern Cafe ” in Stockbridge. We will meet at the Dam parking lot at 5:30 Saturday February 16th and ride to The Fern for dinner. Should be a fun ride to a cool place .If you want anything other than coffee tea or soda you are welcome to bring what you like.
BTW Don’t forget the “High Ledge Stormers” Free Pancake Breakfast silent auction and gun raffle at Franklins in Proctor Sunday February 10th 8 to 11 AM. Stop by and help support this great group of folks who keep the trails smooth in that area.

All things considered the trails have remained in pretty decent shape especially un the higher areas. The access trails have taken a pretty good beating, however you can still access some decent conditions. Doug was out this afternoon doing some grooming before the freezing rain started. The base remains intact now we are looking for some freshies to put us back in good shape. We’ll keep you posted. Ride safely and “Ride Smooth”.
